------- Additional Comments From lowzl@hotmail.com  2005-08-31 11:46 -------
The problem with rewriting /(.*) to /index.php?title=$1 is that $1 containing &
would not escaped correctly, even if the user's URL had escaped & to %26.

For example, /AT%26T would be rewritten to /index.php?title=AT&T instead of
/index.php?title=AT%26T - causing title to only contain 'AT' instead of the
expected 'AT&T'. 

I think this patch is important even though it is too special because & is a
important character in query strings - just as / is a very important character
in path strings - it is quite possible that this case would more often with
other web applications if people made more use of mod_rewrite.
